There are students who love to read and those who do not, but don’t worry too much about being the latter. Even if you have hated every book you’ve read for school, you can still have something to say (good or bad) that addresses an ISEE essay prompt about something you’ve read. However, do not fill your essay with negativity. Instead, make the essay a positive, yet critical, explanation of why you disliked portions, if not all, of the book. Whatever you choose, make sure you remember the storyline, the characters, and the general purpose of the book.
